Seems like a classic case for explicit constructors. I actually thought
about this but didn't mention in my posting. I'm perfectly fine with
using them, so if you really need the conversion from double you can
write (you do; to avoid a chicken-and-egg problem!):

  const length meter(1);

force f = 10; would then be illegal.

For the rest I claim that raw pointers must be abolished.
